Good hands on learning experience/training. A typical day or training was driving the truck, learning the truck parts and testing out skills such as straight line backing, parallel parking and docking.

Great classroom instruction to get you prepared for testing for your permits. Week two is hands on to learn how to maneuver the unit in the proper way. Then weeks 3 & 4 are spent driving in real world situations. When I took my test for my CDL it felt like I was just taking the grading officer for a ride.

I had a wonderful professor who was there to help with any issues that I came across. The class itself was very straightforward and easy to follow. I also used the textbook a lot as a reference to the lessons and it made things much easier even though I was using newer software than the certification required.

Balanced well between classroom time and hands on training. Instructors were professional and made it easy and fun to learn. Experienced drivers are the one who teach the class so they can relate to what they are teaching, which is helpful.
